    Colorado National Monument

    Another photograph taken near the visitor center. In the distance, the mountains are seen, serving as a reminder that you are still in Colorado. With all this flat scenery and red rocks, its easy to get confused.

    Rim Rock drive viewpoints

    Colorado National Monument

    Rim Rock drive is a 23 mile winding road which is shared by motorists and cyclists. The viewpoints along this road face the high sheer cliifs of the monument. In contrast, this picture was taken while hiking along a short trail near the Rim Rock Visitor's Center. The flat plateau stretching east of the monument is markedly different from the views of monument walls in the other directions.

    I believe this is the Cold Shivers Point but not 100% certain. We were fortuante as dark, ominous clouds loomed nearby yet we never were rained on.

    Sentinel Spire

    Sentinel Spire is shown on the right side of the photo. We stopped at many of the lookouts and had hoped to hike but wind gusts were quite strong and temperatures very cool.

    tunnels

    On the west end of the park there are two tunnels blasted through the rugged cliffs. Headlights are required to be on, not to assist the driver but for oncoming traffic.
